The Sumner School District invites students, families and community members to submit nominations for the name of its new elementary school, located in Tehaleh. The new school is anticipated to open Fall 2018.

When submitting name suggestions, please use the following criteria:

  • Geographic features or characteristics of the area in which the school is located
  • A person who has attained national or local prominence and possesses personal characteristics deemed to be a model for the educational setting

After receiving name ideas, a committee will narrow nominations to a list of three to five names for the School Board to consider.

The School Board will make the final selection in March.

To submit name ideas, fill out this short form, or you may email ideas to communications@sumnersd.org. Name submission deadline is Jan. 26.
